INTRODUCTION

 

Electrical Engineering is a branch of Engineering, which deals with the study of the movement of electrons in electrical materials usually referred to as conductors. This phenomenon is a property of the basic particles of all materials consisting of electrons and protons. Therefore, Electrical Engineering is the study of the effects of the electrical property of matter and their utilization for the benefit of mankind and his environment.

Employment opportunities are available to graduates of the Department in the areas of Electrical Machines and Power, Control and Electrical Instrumentation, Electrical Design and Integrated Circuits, Telecommunication and Solid State and Micro- Electronics to name just a few.

 PHILOSOPHY AND OBJECTIVES OF ELECTRICAL/ ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT

 

The philosophy of the Department of Electrical/ Electronic Engineering is the development of technical manpower at the highest level in this field for the sustainable economic growth and industrialization of this country and humanity in general. The main objectives of the Departmental Undergraduate Degree programmes are as follows:

To train engineers to meet the commercial, industrial, educational and technological manpower needs of Nigeria
To produce technocrats who can keep up with the rapid pace of change in the electrical telecommunication, electronic and computer industry worldwide
To train engineers who can provide the technical support base for the fast-growing population industrial establishments
To provide Nigeria with engineers who can design, produce, maintain, and service Electrical/ Electronic Telecommunication equipment.

A project work must be completed in the final year by each candidate. Project normally reflect relevance towards the technological needs of the country.

The programme is designed in such a way that the Philosophy and Objectives of the Programme take cognizance of and be in harmony with:

The Faculty of Engineering, University of Benin general philosophy and objectives in which the faculty was established.
The philosophy and objectives of the National University Commission (NUC) “Minimum Standard” of Jul 1989 pertaining to Engineering and Technology.
The Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN) requisites for this area.
Other Regulation Bodies’ requisites such as The Nigerian Society of Engineers.
The Nigeria’s National Policy on Education and finally those Philosophies and objectives Intrinsic and unique to achieving high academic and professional development in Electrical/Electronic Engineering in the country.

The Department graduated its first intake of 1973/74 Session in 1978/79 session. These were UME level intakes. From the feedback received from industries and parastatals, the department is highly encouraging by the glowing reports and document which we have received on the performance of the graduates for B.Eng. (Electrical/ electronic Engineering).
